Exhibition opening: Russian War Crimes

From 4 September, Humboldt-Universität will be showing the photo exhibition "Russian War Crimes", which documents war crimes in Ukraine. HU President Julia von Blumenthal and Bundestag Vice President Katrin Göring-Eckardt, among others, will speak at the opening.

Since the Russian war of aggression was extended to the entire territory of Ukraine, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin has been standing in solidarity with the Ukrainian people. In addition to its ongoing efforts to support refugee academics and students, the university is showing the exhibition "Russian War Crimes" by the Viktor Pinchuk Foundation in September. Under the patronage of the President of the German Bundestag, the opening will take place on 4 September, 6 pm, in lecture hall 2097 in the main building on Unter den Linden. The public is cordially invited to attend.

Prof. Dr. Julia von Blumenthal, President of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, will welcome visitors to the exhibition opening, followed by a contribution from Katrin Göring-Eckardt, Vice-President of the German Bundestag. Afterwards, Andriy Yermak, Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, and Viktor Pinchuk, the donor of the exhibition, will speak. Björn Geldhof of the Pinchuk Art Centre will introduce the exhibition.

"Russian War Crimes" shows photographic evidence of Russian atrocities in Ukraine. The focus is on the fates of the victims of numerous war crimes. A map of proven cases reveals the massive scale of the outrageous acts of violence. The exhibition was created by the Pinchuk Art Centre with data from Amnesty International and the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office. "Russian War Crimes" will be on display in the main lobby of Humboldt University until 16 September.

The opening event will be held in English and is open to the public. Due to limited space, places can only be allocated in advance by registration. Please state your full name when registering. Admission starts at 5 pm and ends at 5:50 pm.
